I trained with the Gestalt Studio and have a Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy, qualified in 1991. II have a Doctorate in Psychotherapy by Professional Studies (Metanoia Institue and Middlesex University). The title of my thesis is 'Narratives of Mothers in Stepfamily Situations, an Exploratory Investigation'. It can be purchased from Lulu.com.
I am accredited with UKAHPP and UKCP
Among the areas that I work with are the following: personal development, life change loneliness, relationships and family difficulties, depression, bereavement, stress, trauma, anxiety, eating disorders, living more easily with the affect of past events, difficult decisions, OCD, grief.
Additionally, I am interested in what takes place in stepfamilies, and have set up a website, which includes a list of therapists who have specialist understanding of stepfamily situations.
I qualified in Gestalt Psychotherapy in 1991 and over the years have integrated knowledge from other spheres into my practice.
My approach is relational and creative. I make the assumption that we are each experts on ourselves and given the right environment are able to make use of our expertise. I invite people to pay attention to their emotional feelings and body sensations, to become aware of their strengths, limitations and personal resources. Sometimes I suggest exploration aimed at heightening awareness.
